Multiple extensions to a 1950s suburban house doubling the original floor area. The street elevation (East) maintains a traditional tile hung appearance whilst a more contemporary treatment has been given to the rear elevation (West) with floor to ceiling glazing. A frameless glazed corner window gives the kitchen maximum views to the garden and allows the inside and outside spaces to merge. A covered balcony to the new master bedroom above provides shelter and solar shading to the kitchen glazing below. A single storey extension to the South extends the living room and a steel and timber pergola provides shade and defines an outdoor seating area. Upgrade of building fabric, replacement of original windows and new log burner reduce the carbon footprint.
A 2020 ground floor extension has been added to facilitate visits from a wheelchair user relative. The extension has ramped access, large doors and an accessible wet room. Bifold doors access a raised deck with ramped access to the patio and garden.
